1. Paint a feature wall
Creating a feature wall is a simple way to give a room a dramatic focal point. It doesn’t matter what your style and vision for your feature wall entails, just make it you!
2. Reupholster an old chair
Make something old look and feel new! Reupholstering old furniture is a great way to spruce up any room without spending a lot of money.
3. Use baskets to declutter
Everyone has nick-knacks lying around the house. Instead of the useless battle of having a designated spot for them, why not create “things” baskets that can hold all the extra clutter but also look nice.
4. Buy a houseplant or two
Nothing says Spring like bringing life into your house.
5. Hang up a few terrarium-style vases
Building your own little eco-sphere isn’t only lively for your new remodel but it is also a fun craft you can pick up.
6. Mount a map on canvas and use it as art
Track all the places you have been, or all the places you want to go on your new canvas art.
7. Update an inexpensive mirror with rope
Using different types of rope will give different “feels” to the mirror. Go beachy, western, or classic depending on the color and size of your rope.
8. Re-cover old pillows
New pillows can make a room look brand new. Match the material with the season and add little accents for extra pizzazz.
9. Change your curtains
Let more sunlight into your living room and put up some new curtains to match your recovered pillows.
10. Rearrange your furniture
Rearrange your furniture to make the room more spacious. Instead of putting your couch in front of the TV, try facing it toward the window.
11. Add candles
With all the new visual changes time to appeal to another sense. Fill the room with a new scent for the ultimate redecorating experience.
